I am smiling like a cat in a cheese factory right now.
Cheaper Than Dirt!, A company that owes its existence to the firearms community, has decided to restrict gun sales as part of a knee-jerk reaction to the spree killings at a school in Connecticut. They are also price gouging High Capacity Magazines.
This is exactly what I was hoping was going to happen now that the panic is slowly dying supply will slowly appear. The next thing that will happen is the prices will stabilize and then start to drop. People aren't going to sit on this stuff forever, and there are many people who panic bought a ton of stuff thinking they would double their money over night and they will be selling soon also. The market will soon be flooded with AR's and AK's again in the near future I think.

I really don't want to sound offending, but how many bullets do you need, do you guys shoot in the garden for fun?
I just can't wrap my head around this cultural difference.
And yes i know the second.

Prices for High Cap AR mags and various AR platforms are already coming down in price on the gun auction sites...not back to MSRP tho but they have halved the former spread in many instances.
i guess you didnt get the memo. gun manufacturers stopped selling ammo and weapons to states that are ANTI 2nd amendment. basically, if u have any kind of gun restriction, u aint getting ammo unless online buddy. good luck though
That's my take on this "shortage". The Government has priority on ordering and delivery and they're using it in a calculated way to screw with the whole national market. Even order holds need supplies to back them, if called
I'm good on .556. 22, 40 cal and 00 buck, but I can't get 300 blackout anywhere....getting to the point I'll make my own.
